Action at Bergen, 3 August 1665

An incident following the Dutch defeat at Lowestoft, which was the first fleet action of the Second Dutch War, 1665-1667. A returning Dutch East India and Smyrna fleet was forced to put into Bergen, Norway, a neutral port for refuge since the English were blockading the Dutch coast. The English were anxious to capture such a rich prize and entered into a compact with the Danish king (Norway then being under Danish rule). In return for ordering the shore batteries of Bergen not to interfere when the English squadron appeared, he would receive a half share of the spoils. Unfortunately the governor of Bergen did not receive this instruction in time and so the English faced fire from the shore batteries and the guns of the Dutch Indiamen and were forced to retire.
